Forum: audio Subject: If an American song is published 1913 (and the songwriter died 1949), is it public domain?

I ask this as I'd like to use a public domain clip of Dagmar (TV personality of the 1950s) singing "Ballin' the Jack" in an edition of a series of videos I do for the Internet Archive called "Compilation of Classic TV Footage", but I am trying to avoid using clips that contain copyrighted compositions.

Any help would be wonderful.
